Binky Tales

Last Saturday we began restricting Aedan's binky to naptime and bedtime...and he has been a little champ about the whole thing! In fact, when I go in his room to get him up from naptime or bedtime, he hands me his binky!
What a big boy!

Visit to Overland Park Arboretum on Wednesday

Aedan loved seeing all of the beautiful trees and flowers.


I love Elijah and Callan's intense curiosity and excitement in this picture! They had spotted some beautiful orange fish in the pond.

Go, Elijah!!

We are sooooooooo proud of Elijah! Within the past few days, he has learned to ride his two-wheel bike without the training wheels. He has been working so hard and with such determination, that he puts a training Olympian to shame!
He is working on perfecting his bike-riding technique now...and is so proud of himself!

Mimi, My Grandmother

Today is the 6th year anniversary of the death of my grandmother, and I still miss her as if it were yesterday that she passed away.
My Mimi was never able to meet our children, as she died before they were born. I wish so badly that they could have known her. I talk about her all the time to them and have many pictures of her that I love to share with them as well.
I wish they could have known her gentle touch and heard her beautiful singing voice. They would have loved her, and she would have loved them.
